    In order to attract more passenger and freight customers and consistently satisfy their requirements, more innovative and cost-effective ways need to be identified and implemented to increase punctuality, safety-security and capacity, improve performance at a system level and remove barriers to seamless intermodal transport and railway interoperability.

    The “forever open” concept comprises the following central elements:

    • Adaptability: focusing on ways to allow operators to respond in a flexible manner to changes in users’ demands and constraints.
    • Enhanced Automation: focusing on the full integration of intelligent communication technology (ICT) and applications between the user, the vehicle, traffic management services and operation.
    • Resilience: focus on ensuring service levels are maintained even under extreme operating conditions [...].
